in the united states. dave: how closely do you monitor foreign currencies? as the u.s. dollar begins to increase in value by virtue against some of the foreign exporters of wines do you follow currencies very closely? >> we follow currencies but actually a stronger dollar and a weaker euro help us a lot because we own companies in europe and we export those products to the united states. a week euro strong dollar is to our benefit. as a general proposition we are not that currency exposed. currency is not a big factor in earnings these days. dave: what do you think of the economy in general? >> it is a slow recovery. we have actually seen that help us in certain areas like the on premise which has gone from being substantially down to being up for the first time. the slow recovery has helped our business but in general our business is not terribly cyclical. therefore, the economy does not tend to have a big impact on us one way or the other. dave: what are your plans for expansion? beer had been falling for a couple years before it took off again. >> our beer business has been growing but now it
of the united states, which is tech and biotech. we are going to look at companies that trade -- [talking over each other] >> trades in a liquid fashion at $16 billion from the balance sheet with 3% dividend yield. that is a company we are going to hold long term. in the short-term this earnings season continues to have dismal revenue growth and that is what we are going to focus on because western europe's demise in the unemployment market here. liz: you mentioned in tell. we have a former chairman craig barrett who had run the company for many years and he is here with so much to talk about. where do you stand on this and what is the best way to make money with the way you are viewing the market? >> we have to look at this from a long review. in the short-term there will be a lot of volatility. the markets will go up or down. the economy may or may not do better depending who gets elected. all, we what we need to look at from a google perspective and microsoft perspective and intel perspective is where is the market going? how are we transitioning? we are moving from a fixed market place whe
're giving incentives to companies that are investing here in the united states and creating jobs here, it also means we're helping them and small businesses to export all around the world in new markets. number two, we've got to make sure that we have the best education system in the world, and the fact that you're going to college is great, but i want everybody to get a great education. and we've worked hard to make sure that student loans are available for folks like you. but i also want to make sure that community colleges are offering slots for workers to get retrained for the jobs that are out there right now and the jobs of the future. number three, we've got to control our own energy. you know, not only oil and natural gas which we've been investing in, but also we've got to make sure we're building the energy sources of the future. not just next year but ten years from now, twenty years from now. that's why we invest in solar and wind and biofuels, energy-efficient cars. we've got to reduce our deficit in a balanced way. asking the wealthy to pay a little bit more along with c
the beginning. lou: they were watching it we learn with real-time with all technology deployed by united states intelligence community and our state department, in part of which is is one in the same, but the fact is that there was no response in real-time, there was no acknowledgment even in a timely fashion this was a terrorist attack, and we had hours to analyse and understand comprehend and not only to make a statement, and clarify a statement to the american people but to act. >> we didn't even rescue them, why wasn't the pentagon on day of beirut bombing all hands on deck, what happened in benghazi? why didn't see send a commando raid? we did not know there would be dead americans, it could have been hostages, we just left them there. >> one fellow, in last night's so-called town hall meeting. and by the way, as an aside i believe we'll never see another town hall debate, presidential debate, in this country after that. but the man asked a simple question of the president, who denied the security for benghazi. it was a flat out evasion, he ignore that man's questions, and moderator did no
was attacked. both left the country, left the city. benghazi as a result. the united states was the only western power with a standard flying, if you will, in benghazi. and it is extraordinary. there would not be security for our ambassador, our diplomats, the staff of that consulate. >> it is. if you think about it, the first segment, you're talking about a man that was the failure to provide adequate security despite the fact that there were repeated indications that additional security was needed. the second was the one you mentioned earlier, namely the fact that once they were under attack that information came back to the united states almost instantaneously. and it clearly went into the situation room and the white house, and if it went into the situation room and the white house, which it did, it had to be made very properly available to, at least the chief of staff and the national security advisor. these are two people who are with the president day in and day out and you have the sip -- responsibility of informing the president. so is very hard for me to believe that president
the united states. they were complaining in the 2000s. they were complaining in the 1990s i take it with a grain of salt. melissa: professor, do you think the risks for global recession are high? >> yes, they say essentially one in six chance of that. look at our pushback against the imf. the imf says something sort of mildly critical of united states and we're pushing back imagine what it's like in greece when they're telling you have got to cut everything that is on the table? so you can see just by our discussion how difficult these political issues really are. melissa: gentlemen, thanks to both of you. we have to jump. we've got some breaking news. thank you. >> thank you. melissa: let's go to breaking news on chevron's third quarter earnings. robert gray is standing by with more on that. hey, robert. >> melissa, they're providing mid-quarter update and investors are not liking it at first blush. down 2% after-hours. chevron see third quarter earnings per share quote, substantially lower on that the second quarter. analysts we should note are factoring that in. they're 50 cen

can be democratic allies to the united states in the future and to be able to defend themselves from al qaeda. sandra: how governor, does governor romney's plan differ from that of the president's to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons? >> governor romney believes in peace through strength. he harkens back to the reagan era mantra that if america is strong, they will not have to use force. and that is the most important thing in this discussion because no one want to use force with iran but it has to be a credible card on the table and governor romney is going to go back. he is going to strengthen our military. he is going to ask for more sanctions. president obama will tell you these are the strongest sanctions we can use against iran. that is not true. there are still some 20 waivers out there that could be withdrawn. he would tighten the sanctions further. he would make sure the military threat is credibility and try to bring a diplomatic solution into place into iran. sandra: governor, we're a few hours away from the very key presidential debate, the last of the three. the
